A New Way to Manage Peri-Implantitis
As the dental profession adapts to rapid advances in dental implants, it is important to ensure your office is equipped to meet the clinical challenges of placing and restoring dental implants, and managing any cases of peri-implant disease that may arise.
With tens of thousands of dental implants being placed over the last several years alone, the need for gentle, effective, modern therapy to manage incidences of peri-implantitis is a must.
BIOLASE dental lasers offer fast, effective, minimally invasive alternatives to traditional implant surgical tools.
